GNOME 3.8?

Postby lots.0.logs » Thu May 02, 2013 2:44

I installed Sabayon 13.04 last night and everything went smoothly. I did run into an issue with my wifi but nothing google couldnt handle! I am coming from using openSUSE as my daily use distro and I have grown quite fond of GNOME 3.8. Is there an update repo I can add to get 3.8 for Sabayon? Or what is the correct process if one even exists. I have googled this to death so I am resorting to a forum post which I very rarely do lol. Thanks in advance for any help on this!

As soon as Gnome 3.8 is available, it will be added to the repository and you will be automatically notified that "upgrades are available". When you do a system upgrade, the new version will be automatically installed on your system. I don't use gnome, so I don't know if it's available yet, but, upgrades like that are usually very prompt.

GNOME 3.8 is being held by Gentoo because it requires a systemd component (logind instead of consolekit). But we expect to have it soon.

Hi,

I must say that I was not able to find anything (which I was able to understand) about this at the Gentoo project. Is there any progess on this? And/or anywhere we can monitor it?

I'm bragging about the "Bleeding edge" of Sabayon to my friends, and I keep getting hit back with "you're not even on Gnome 3.8 yet!" :oops: :lol:

Still, a very happy Sabayon user. Using it as a daily driver and loving it every day!

Regards,
Patrick
